Cost element category 42

Former Member

We would like to use cost element category 42 and have it post to the FI area instead of the CO area.

This cost element category is used to allocate costs using the assessment method. Category 42 only works with secondary cost elements within the CO area and does not post to the FI area like we would like it to.

We wanted to know if there was a cost element category like 42 that posts to FI at this time.

Or can SAP will create a category that works like 42 but with primary cost elements for us?

Cost element categories are not a subject for change, neither new categories can be added. According to your description, you have to use distribution instead of assessment.
